Horseshoe Crab Conservation
Scientific Data demonstrates that the four Horseshoe Crab Species, Family Xiphuridae, have experienced a severe decline in numbers world-wide due to combined impacts of human predation, environmental degradation, and habitat loss. These Creatures are beneficial to human-kind, use of their unique blood to safeguard both the human replacement-blood supply, and pharmaceutical products essential to combating disease. Their eggs are a significant food supply for millions of migrating shore birds. They are a prehistoric creature.
